Third Eye Blind Popular Songs & My Favorites From 3eb!

Updated on February 15, 2012

I still remember when the song Semi-Charmed Life came out. It was everywhere - on the radio, on MTV! I have to admit that I didn't really care for the band at first. Back then I was straight into the spoils of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal all the way! Third Eye Blind was to me, back then, sissy rock.

As I got older, however, my musical tastes started varying quite a bit, and I started to listen to all kinds of stuff I would've never touched when I was younger. Third Eye Blind's music would be one that I would grow to enjoy immensely.

With a great sense of melody and lyrical prowess, Third Eye Blind knows how to write catchy hooks and songs that are hard to forget and easy to sing a long too. Even more so, they have a great range of writing diversity that few bands have, and their sound is an eclectic mix of pop, rock, hip hop, and experimental.

The guitars were more standard and straightforward on their first album. After that, you could tell the band was starting to experiment with various guitar tones, sounds and effects that weren't all that popular in song writing. Lead singer and songwriter Stephan Jenkins would always says that he tries to capture an "exotic" feel and tone with the songs.

While most fans argue that 3eb's best album is their first debut album, I tend to disagree. Although, my absolute favorite song I Want You is off their first album, I tend to appreciate the songs on their later albums.

Not to say that I don't like songs like Semi-Charmed Life, Jumper, How's It Going To Be, but to be completely honest, I tend to bypass those songs often. I know they're the more popular Third Eye Blind songs, but they aren't my favorites.

Anyhow, for those just getting into the band and want to know all the Third Eye Blind popular songs, I'm going to list them here for you. Then I'm going to list my personal favorites. Enjoy!

      Hi ChristyWrites, thanks for stopping by and I do like Semi-Charmed Life as well. Not my favorite, but it's a catchy song and hard not to sing a long too. If you asked me when this song first came out if I thought I'd ever like it, I probably would've said, "Hell no!"

      But it's true that tastes change with time. I really enjoy Third Eye Blind's music now and all their albums have some really good songs on them.

      Thanks for the vote up and the comment. Good to hear from you.
